A fledgling charity, established by the wife of a Norfolk MP and her twin sister, has celebrated a milestone with a Downing Street reception, hosted by Samantha Cameron.
Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope was established by sisters Victoria Bacon and Sarah Hope last year to help young amputees across the world, in memory of their mother, Elizabeth Panton, who was killed by an out of control bus in London five years ago.
The same crash also injured Mrs Hope and her two-year-old daughter, Pollyanna, who lost a leg, which spurred the sisters on to set up a charity to help amputees in the developing world.
